MY COMMENTS:
I've not really painted much since having my son. Im trying to get back into the swing of things, so i thought I'd do a sort of back to basics type of painting. It was a quick study, done in about an hour wtih acrylics.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Anything, really? things I should work on and improve on...What do you think of the piece? Whatever you wish to comment on. THanks!

This is good the way it is. I wouldn't do much to it.
Maybe you want to put some lighter values in the foreground on my left to show the direction of the light and darken the shadows behind the bowl a bit.
Recently I've been adding warm colors like alirizin crimson to my cool shadows and the results are .. well. pretty cool!
Nice effort.
